This series of work uses the traditional colours for Fire (reds), Water (blues), Earth (greens and browns) and Air (white and blues) to create sculptural bowls.
To create her sculptural works Tamara draws with thread using a domestic sewing machine and a fabric that dissolves in water. This unique process and fabric allows her to build up densely stitched structures that hold together once the base fabric is dissolved. By repeatedly stitching embroidery thread over itself Tamara creates intricate, three-dimensional forms that are representations of the patterns and structures found in nature.
